"Unique and engaging"

Doug's new book The Day Makes the Year (Makes a Life)

Doug Fleener's story is not your typical tale of business success. Neither is his approach to transforming a person's work and life.

Doug's failures and struggles with drug addiction and alcoholism and his journey to being a CEO, international speaker, and business advisor offer a compelling story and perspective. Having faced personal adversity and emerged stronger, Doug understands the parallels between recovery and business success.

This realization led to his unique approach and book – The Day Makes the Year (Makes a Life) – emphasizing the importance of daily actions, reactions, and decisions in achieving long-term success.

With a background ranging from retail management to serving as the CEO of a national company, Doug has firsthand experience integrating daily success into an organization's culture. His narrative is a testament to the human spirit and the potential of daily decisions in crafting success. 

Doug has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Entrepreneur, Fast Company, Inc., and numerous other newspapers and magazines. He has also appeared i numerous news shows.
